Final bow for country favourite
DIANA Trask doesn’t know what the next leg of her journey will be.
But what is certain is her current tour will be the last for her in Australia.
After taking a long break from showbiz, the Australian-born, US-based country singer is looking forward to reuniting with old fans when she performs in Tweed Heads next week.
“I’ve played at Tweed Heads many times before,” Trask said.
The country singer said she had been blown away by the strong response she’d received from audiences, despite her long absence from the stage.
“It’s pretty gratifying,” she said.
“I thought people would say Diana who? But in my kind of music, fans are very loyal.”
She said it was great to reunite with old fans and friends on her tour.
“We’ve all had the ride together,” she said.
“Our generation knows how to party!”
Trask, who’s toured the vast majority of Australia over the years, said she had still not made it through Western Australia beyond the confines of Perth.
“That’s on my bucket list,” she said, adding that touring the heart of the country had been a highlight of her career.
“It was one of the most fantastic things I’ve ever done in my life,” she said.
Trask said her performance comeback was prompted by the writing of her autobiography, Whatever Happened to Diana Trask, followed by a series of videos and CD releases.
Since then, she’s had no regrets about getting back into performing.
“(The shows) have been exceptionally well received,” she said.
The show is expected to feature some of her old hits, along with some newer material.
Trask wasn’t sure where life would take her in the future, but said her new passion was in writing for plays.
